Throwing Little Thought Pebbles at Your Windshield Since 1996

Month: May, 2004

Done!

Okay, you can back off, cause I planted everything I bought, okay? Sheesh! See if I invite you over to eat any of our strawberries, assuming the plants actually bear fruit…

Okay, NOW I Shall Plant

Look, if I come back in here and start typing before I’ve actually finished planing, you have my permission to kick my butt and tell me you won’t read a word I’ve written for the rest of the week. And then I can come back and say “God, you guys are so harsh!”

crazy

We took the kids to the drive-in tonight to see Shrek 2 (my step-kids hadn’t seen it yet) and boy, is it COLD out there. Picture a parking lot full of kids sitting in lawn chairs in sleeping bags. The kids, not the lawn chairs. Packed, this place was. Junior last outside for half the […]

It’s Friday, But It Feels Like Monday

Somehow, I forgot to change my Sidekick last night. This thing goes through batteries like my son goes through grapes. And grapes go through him. So it’s not on today, because even though I thought I’d put it on the car charger during the commute, I unplugged it when I dropped Junior off at his […]

Tell Me, Would You?

Sheesh, if anyone ever spots something broken here that shouldn’t be (like, say, the archives?) could you just drop a note? Even if it’s a comment to a post, I’ll get it! And then I can fix it! Thanks Mitch for being brave enough to drop me an e-mail, and in quivering voice, mention that […]

Avon Walk Photo

I know some of you sponsored my sister on the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer, so I thought I’d show you a photo of her, and our best friend, at the end of the two-day 36 mile walk. It was in the 90’s the first day, and raining in the 50s-60s the 2nd. Two weather […]

Thunder In the Distance

I have no right to complain about thunder storms, not with the destruction tornadoes brought over the weekend. But two days in a row the booming woke me at 4am. Hey, God, I have to work, you know? And Sunday is my day off (sort of like yours). How am I supposed to have a […]
